Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream


We like ice cream made with condensed milk like this version from "Delicious Desserts Made Easy".  You can make this ice cream whether you have an ice cream maker or not – the recipe is very good either way.  When I use my ice cream maker, I can use some milk instead of heavy cream, but when you use the recipe method, you must use all heavy cream for success.

  2        Teaspoons  Peppermint Extract
  4        Drops  Green Food Coloring

  1        Cup  Whole Milk -- or heavy cream
